Visconti proudly introduces a new fountain pen model: Caesar's Firenze, commemorating the founding of Florence, Italy by the celebrated Roman ruler, Julius Caesar, in 59 BC. Originally founded as a settlement for Caesar's veteran soldiers, it was named Fluentia due to the fact it was built between two rivers. Many years later it was renamed as the city we know today as Florence.
Made from Visconti ‘Titanic’ celluloid, the material is gorgeous - a beautiful deep blue celluloid with brown variations. It features a completely new Visconti pen model design. The pen's cap and body have a smooth, rounded surface that is interrupted by two facets along the length of the entire pen.
The clip is Visconti's classic Ponte Vecchio bridge clip accented with blue enamel in the logo, and the cap has a threaded closure and features the My Pen System coin.
Visconti is now transitioning to 18kt gold Perfecttouch nibs made by Bock in Germany. We've indicated in the nib size dropdown whether the 23kt palladium or 18kt gold nib is currently being offered at Goulet Pens.
The fountain pen utilizes Visconti's power filler system, and comes in two trim options - rose gold and silver. Each is limited to only 59 pieces, and is presented in a special limited edition collector's gift box.
